    The Black Gold and how to ruin it

    My Baby is fit and ready for the upcoming track season Smiley

    The last thing on the to-do-list was to get some new sticky rubber today Smiley

    Will be interesting to observe how sticky the N1s really are.

    Re: The Black Gold and how to ruin it

    The MPSC work perfectly with the more track oriented Manthey setup on my car.Smiley.....unlke the Pirelli Zero Corsa. I ruined a set of rear tires, because obviously they didn't like the slightly more aggressive camber (2°50' vs. 2° stock). The tires developed those things what we call Sägezähne in German (saw teeth in English) ? Smiley It only happened on the rear tires for some unknown reasons (though actually camber on the fronts is even more agressive - 3°20' vs. 1°20' stock) Smiley

    As a result there were some very unpleasant vibrations (though only at higher speeds > 200 km/h).

    My right foot got a proper massage at high speed Smiley

    Of course the car got a thourough preparation for the season in the PZ (including alignment check etc.) to make sure that there is no problem with the hardware.

    After the new rubber was fitted today of course first thing was to do a highspeed test on the Autobahn Smiley

    Everything perfect again SmileySmiley

    BTW the Pirellis + factory alignment worked great.

    Nicely done! Good to hear everything is solved and the car is 100% again! Ton's of more fun will be in your future. BTW you many miles did you get on your last set? especially in the rear.. 10,000kms? 20,000 kms? 5,000 kms? 

    Happy motoring, Viel Spass

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)
